It’s a Beautiful Day to Share What You Love

Today I’m showing you a card I made with a few products from the Share What You Love product Suite. It’s featured in the new Annual Catalog that goes live June 1 but you can purchase it now!

Share What YOu Love, Stampin' Up!

Don’t you love this beautiful paper?

Design Notes for Share What You Love Card:

The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Paper in this collection is so beautiful. Many of the pages have pearly accents. The paper is also a bit thicker than most designer paper. I cut the Tranquil Tide card stock so that just an inch of it was on the front. The designer paper was cut at 4″ x 5 1/2. That way you can see the other side of the paper from the inside. 

Share What YOu Love, Stampin' Up!

I added a little interest to the lovely Pearlized Doily by sponging it with some Rich Razzleberry ink. Finally, I added one of the Leaves Trinkets to the front.

A Little Look at Lovely Lipstick!

A few weeks ago, demonstrators who had attended a Stampin’ Up! event were able to purchase some new catalog products. One of the things we could purchase were the new 2018-2020 In-Color ink pads and some card stock in those colors. I can’t begin to pick a favorite but if forced, Lovely Lipstick would be right near the top. Here’s my first project using that color.

Lovely Lipstick In color, Detailed With Love stamp set, Layering Ovals Framelits, Detailed Trio Punch, Stampin' Up!,

I love this bright, clear red! I think you will be seeing a lot of this color!


Design Notes for Lovely Lipstick Card:

Seems like a long time since I had made a z-fold card. I used a new stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual catalog called Detailed with Love. You will be able to purchase that stamp set June 1. That oval shape really showed off the Lovely Lipstick color. I think there are lots of colors I could have used to complement it but the Sahara Sand was my choice for today.

While you can’t purchase the stamp set that I used  yet, there are some wonderful new items you can pick up!

First, a set of In Color ink pads. Buy all five colors and you can get 10% off! Yea!


Even more exciting, there are three other bundles featuring the Love What You Do stamp set. In this video you will see the three different bundles and Free items that are included with each of the Bundles.


Here’s the first Getting Started Bundle. Click on the image to go to my 24-7 on-line store and see each of the items in the Bundle.

The next bundle, A Little More, Please contains all of the products from the Just Getting Started Bundle but added some card stock, accessories and TWO gifts! Click on the image to go to my 24-7 on-line store and see each of the items in the Bundle.


The third Bundle is pretty special and includes three Free items. Click on the image to go to my 24-7 on-line store and see each of the items in the Bundle.

Hope you are having a great day!



Coffee Cafe for Global Design Project

I think that the first thing I notice is color. Maybe card colors, clothing, furniture or decor items. So, when I saw that this week’s challenge from  Global Design Project was a color challenge, I knew that I would participate. The choice of Coffee Cafe stamp set was totally random!

Isn’t this a great color combination? Here’s the challenge logo. Just click on the image below  to go to the site.


Design Notes for Coffee Cafe Card:

One of the first things I did was to look in the Annual Catalog to see what colors were in the Coffee Break Designer Series Paper. Once I saw that Soft Suede was one of the colors, it was an easy decision to use that paper on my card. I stamped the cup, lid and wrapper with Soft Suede ink and cut them out with the Coffee Cups Framelits..And isn’t the shimmery ribbon a fun touch? Finally, I added a little Wink of Stella on the words to make them stand out a bit.

You’re The Best, Really!

Today I’m again participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights. The theme this time is love. This past weekend I was with my BFF, Janice and her family. We always have fun together and I always feel so blessed and loved when I am with them. So, it was a no brainer that I would make a card for Janice. The sentiment from Watercolor Words describes her perfectly, “You’re the best”

I love the designer paper on this card and took Kylie’s advice to use it! #LoveItChopIt

Design Notes for Watercolor Words Card:

It was fun making this card! I found a little piece of the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Paper and cut it down just a bit to fit the layer I was planning. Next, I just did some same color stamping with a flower from the stamp set on the Marian Mist piece of card stock.

The sentiment was stamped with Marina Mist ink and then cut with the Layering Circles Thinlits. I popped it up with some Dimensionals. Finally, I added some rhinestones to echo the glitz in the Designer Paper.

Window Shopping Box for Try Stamping On Tuesday

This week I have another Try Stamping On Tuesday challenge sample to show you. I used the Window Shopping stamp set to help me create a cover for one of the Acetate Card Boxes.

Design Notes for Window Shopping Box:


This is actually not a card but just a front piece I placed on an Acetate Card Box. I made some cards for a friend of mind and wanted to put them in something cute. The Acetate Card Boxes fit up to six cards and envelopes nicely. You might recognize the cards as some that I featured in a post a week or so ago.


Window Shopping stamp set, TryStampingontuesday, Quilt Top embossing folder, Stampin' Up!,


Since the design had lots of white, or unstamped space I wanted something to add a little interest. I could have used some designer paper but opted to use regular card stock and emboss it. The Quilt Top Embossing Folder is from the Holiday Catalog but is still available. Isn’t it a nice design?
